Cedar Fascia Boards
With the aid of a friend with a bandsaw mill, I received some wide pieces of cedar for the fascia boards. Joelle Montez designed the cut-outs, and jig saw cut and carved the designs.
The cedar caps the foam, but leaves ventilation for the air gap created by the furring strips.
The next focus was the back gable end fascia boards. Joelle designed and cut out the boards and I thought about a piece of art for the back gable peak.
I cut out a piece of old growth western red cedar in the shape of a swallow.
After cutting the pattern with a bandsaw I spent a day carving the lines in the swallow to make him look like he is swooping down from the fascia.
Here is a close up of the swallow attached on the gable fascia.
